    Bruce is buying a fantastic Sawin Gallery, and I come home with another ogee?

    Oh...........Gee ! You have a beautiful clock there . The Germans certainly outdid Jerome and themselves . Have you seen many German ogees ? Congratulations to you ! Sorry about the holes in the bottom board . It looks like they got the weights hot enough and pushed them right on through ...

    f.webster , The wind indicators do not come through the dial . You are missing the very tip piece . Make from tinplate steel , a T shape about 3/8" wide and 3/8 tall . Plus or minus . Wrap the arms of the T around the brass tip you have there and the vertical leg is bent 90 degrees . Now...

    It looks like it was made in second half of 1910 . Hank the pendulum on it and try to run it . What can it hurt ? Long term , it should be overhauled as it may never have been done . it's dirty and would accelerate wear .

    Didn't they use one long trundle on that lantern pinion ? That's why the count wheel has saw teeth form . Solder on the lantern looks like someone has been there before .

    Thank you for the tour , RM . The clock is almost too good to believe . The bottom of the label has no watermark . Close to spooky good .

    The weaker springs will drive the clock mechanisms .

    I have had one of these clocks running for many years . Yours looks to be in very good / little wear condition . The overhaul of the movement is quite straightforward . I will suggest you change the springs to ones of .016" to .018" thickness . Originals are too strong and wear the great wheels...

    RM , I have a pillar & scroll made in the 1960s very much the quality of your clock . Every nail and glue block is 'just so' . Folks don't appreciate a case until they sat and tried to make one good example . I admire the clock as a tribute to the maker . I'm told he made a lot of period...
